A western Brisbane woman, who was asked to mind Queensland Labor for a couple of years until the boys came back, has been shocked by news she may be the state’s next Premier.
“WTF!!!” said 45 year old Annastacia Palaszczuk when told the news during the ABC’s state election coverage.
“ME the Premier??? You’re having me on, aren’t you?”
She then laughed excitedly and hugged ABC election analyst Antony Green.
Both broke down in tears. Palaszczuk for winning a job she never asked for. Green for getting an election result wrong for the first time.
Ms Palaszczuk said later that, if Queenslanders have actually elected her Premier, then she “might as well give it a go and see what happens.”
Premier Campbell Newman is yet to concede defeat as, like a lot of Queenslanders, he is not really sure who Annastacia Palaszczuk is.
